The Ensign has a great article this week about the Word of Wisdom, which is an awkward way to say the health code that the Mormon church teaches us to live by.
For a long time I have felt that much of the no tea/coffee thing boiled down to the fact that we don’t want anything that gives us an addiction — something we can’t live without.
But this article had another good point:
Those who misuse legal or illegal drugs need to seek help so their bodies can become clean again and free from addiction. A clean body is more receptive to the Holy Ghost.
I think most people would agree with this. I think people who are wrapped up in any type of addiction just have a MUCH harder time making good choices. Period.
Just another little fact about Mormons.
Another fact is that Josh Powell left the church a long time ago, although I think his wife still practiced before she went missing/died. I remind myself it’s not for me to judge or want to beat the tar out of him. I’m fairly sure he will be living with his misery for a long time. My hope is that his wife and his children have eternal happiness, to make up for what they lived through here on earth.
